Casa Luis - Villa for 8 people in Roche

Bedrooms 4
Property type villa
Minimum Stay 1 - 7 nights


About the property

Villa, 4 bedrooms, 2 bathrooms, 8 people

Less than 200m from a Chariots-of-Fire 8km stretch of sand that is arguably one of the most impressive on this unspoilt stretch of coast, Casa Luis is the perfect beach house: simple, yet comfortable; sunny (fenced) pool yet large shaded terrace; cosy in winter (fire and central heating) yet cool in summer (well maintained and mature garden with umbrella pines, palms and rubber plants); and close enough to the sea to hear the surf breaking from your bed (or the nightingales on the neighbouring heath!) Within the exclusive residential area of Roche, the house is located in a quiet cul-de-sac that terminates with steps leading down to the perfect Atlantic beach that stretches all the way to the abandoned tuna-fishing port of Sancti Petri in one direction, and to low sandstone cliffs that rise to form a series of tiny sandy coves and rock pools known as the Calas de Conil in the other. Built less than 20 years ago, the house is Andalus in style, with white-washed walls and terracotta roof tiles.

Accommodation at Casa Luis is in one floor.

Built on one floor, with a large furnished terrace acting as a natural extension to the sitting room. The furnishing is comfortable and personal, with large comfy sofas around an open fire and well-stocked book shelves for winter visitors, and large wicker sofas and a bbq on the covered terrace for the summer months. The walls are decorated with the owner's own paintings of the local area and there is a TV, DVD, and music system.

There is off-road parking for two cars (although there is no problem parking on the road). It is a five minute walk to the local shop and pharmacy as well as tennis and paddle tennis courts. The nearest restaurant is a 15-minute walk down the beach. The nearest supermarket and broader selection of restaurants are a 5-minute drive away.

Accommodation at Casa Luis comprises of a small terrace by the front door that catches the morning sun but is shaded from the midday and afternoon heat. The front door then opens on to a sitting/dining room, and off this there is a fully-fitted kitchen, which also has access from a back patio with outside shower area (ideal for sandy children!) The bedrooms (and bathrooms) are at the back of the house, and two of them look out towards the swimming pool. There is one double room, two twins, and a single. Cots are available. The large covered terrace runs down the western side of the house and gets all the afternoon and evening sun. It is furnished with sofas, chairs, dining table, well-cared for pot plants, and even paintings on the walls!

About DosXtremos

Originally a husband-wife team that left Madrid for Spain’s deep south and a change of virtually everything, we came up with the idea of DosXtremos in 2006, the catalyst being the need to increase the number of people renting our own properties, one in La Coruña and the other in Cadiz, Atlantic Spain’s two wonderful extremes. And since then, even though the business has grown (we now manage a number of properties for other owners), our goal has always been the same: to try and tell other people about these two wonderful and relatively undeveloped areas of Spain that have brought us so much happiness! For this reason, the website has a heavy focus on regional information and includes details on the activities that we enjoy, both individually and as a family with young children.

All our houses are in the provinces of La Coruña and Cadiz, although there is a significant bias towards Cadiz, because that is where we live. Each house has been chosen because it has something special to offer, and we have tried to ensure that the mix meets a variety of tastes and requirements. In the case of the Cadiz properties, we live close by, meaning we are on-hand for problem solving and making recommendations. You may prefer to lounge by the pool (all our pools are extremely tempting!), but if you do want to explore, we have suggestions to fill a lot more than two weeks! As for La Coruña, we personally are a long way away, but the properties are well looked after and our list of recommendations is even longer (to offset the less predictable weather!) In addition, we have a close and productive working relationship with all our owners, and we believe this shows in the way our properties are maintained.

Those two extremes: Cadiz & La Coruña are quite different, but equally fabulous; and we are able and eager to tell you all sorts of things about both. It is a simple recipe: the better the information we give you, the more likely you are to have a good time...and therefore to return!

Why DosXtremos chose Conil de la Frontera

Closeness to the beach and confort

Guestbook comments from the manager

The main drawing points for visitors to Casa Luis appear to be the large covered terrace, which, when fully furnished, acts as an extension to the sitting/dining room. From here, you can see the pool and enjoy the afternoon sun (or shade). One of the other big attractions is the fenced salt-water pool, which is ideal for children. Built on one floor, and with off-road parking, Casa Luis is also comfortable for the elderly. And the central heating and open fire make it a cosy retreat for winter stays (with the Atlantic roaring at night). But perhaps the greatest asset of all is the location: The beach is close enough for that pre-breakfast dip; and fresh bread, newspaper, bar, and tennis courts are a 5-minute walk; while 2 restaurants (and the spa!) are a 20-minute stroll down the beach.

Beautiful Villa in Roche

  • 5 of 5

Had a fantastic one week in Casa Luis. Family of 5 with three kids enjoyed the big backyard with pool and even a ping pong table. Lots of room, clean and better than the pictures. Pleasantly surprised. Short walk to the beach which was big, sandy and not crowded. Lots of amenities nearby. Located in the small, cute, quite resort town of Roche. Easy drive to the sites and Cadiz. We traveled through Spain for three weeks and this rental was our favorite by far. Andrew was easy to get a hold of and answered all our questions quickly. Great place!

Perfect two weeks in Casa Luis

  • 5 of 5

Second time at the beautiful Casa Luis and another perfect stay. The house is in the perfect location close to the beach (which is probably the best in the Cadiz coast) and has beautiful gardens surrounding with some shaded places under the pine trees for hot days. Andrew and team make the stay really comfortable and are there at the drop of a hat when needed. Lots of fantastic places to eat close-by.

Casa Luis - brilliant stay.

  • 5 of 5

Amazing location - so close to beach and play park. Easy to amuse both a 5 year old and a 13 year old - especially with pool and table tennis - so adults were able to sit back and relax, a little!

Casa Luis was exactly as described - everything in great working order - loved the coffee maker and juice maker.

Would definitely recommend, and are very much looking forward to returning!

Quite and comfortable - perfect for families

  • 5 of 5

We stayed 2 two harmonic weeks in the Casa Luis, which did exactly meet our expectations after having read the descriptions and reviews. It is large enough for five to six people, although it can house up to eight. The furniture is tasteful, the kitchen fully equipped and the two bathrooms are small but freshly renovated. The pool is large enough for children after the beach time and the beautiful, large garden is very well maintained. The beach close to the house (2 min walking) is very clean and ideally suited for long beach days with the children. During our stay the long waves did come smoothly enough to allow also our younger children to surf with their body boards.

Roche itself is a quite location, consisting mostly of private houses as the Casa Luis. We did not see any hotels there, which is a clear advantage from our point of view. The small supermarket nearby is sufficient for the basics and Conil de la Frontera, where you can get everything, is just 10 minutes away by car. There are only a few restaurants in Roche but we anyway explored several of the beautiful neighboring cities for dinner and therefore did not miss them. Last but not least Andrew, who manages several houses in Roche, has been very helpful with lots of tips and clues. All in all a clear recommendation for families.

Great location, beach and house

  • 5 of 5

Casa Luis was a very comfortable villa with a nice sized pool, large garden (enough room for our 7 year old to kick a ball around) and great location. Despite being in a small residential community with neighbours, the house and garden/pool were very quiet and private as there are many trees and bushes on the property. Inside, the house has a nice lived-in (in a good way) feel to it, with comfortable furniture and beds, decorations, books and other personal items – it felt like we were staying at someone's house as opposed to just a rental property.

It's just a 2 minute walk to the Roche beach. And what a beach: great sand, nice waves (not too big or too small), perfect water temperature, backed by vegetation not hotel/condos, lifeguards and never too crowded.

There's a decent chiringuito just down the beach about a 10 minute walk from the house and a fairly well stocked little store as well as some sports fields and restaurants in the centre of Roche, about a 10 minute walk. Within a 10 minute drive there are a couple small places to buy fish, vegetables and a larger grocery store.

Andrew was great, he was easily reached by phone or email and was very helpful with tips for restaurants (El Casario pizza was great) and activities. When the hot water went out one day he was over to fix it promptly (I believe he lives just down the road). Wifi and sat-tv, with some English channels, worked fine. The only small con I can think of is that the bedrooms could use some fans for hot nights (master had a ceiling fan but smaller bedrooms didn't, most nights it was fine but we had a couple hot ones).

This area of Spain was wonderful, outside the other built up coastal areas so there's some nice driving through the surrounding countryside, but close to many beautiful towns for daytrips. We went to Vejer, Cadiz and Tarifa (a little further but had a fantastic couple hours whale watching, saw a ton of Orca's!).

We would highly recommend this house for its fantastic beach location, comfort and proximity to so many wonderful places to visit.

Owner's Response: I'm glad your stay was such a success, and thank you for taking the time to write a review. You mention the idea of ceiling fans in all the bedrooms for the really hot nights (even though we have few of these!), and you will be pleased to know that they have already been installed!!!!

Easy drive to Jerez /sherry houses), Cádiz (possibly Europe's oldest city), Tarifa (and the boat to Tangiers), the wonders of Seville, and the intriguing pueblos blancos (white villages), which include Vejer-de-la-Frontera. This is the Spain of fighting bulls and flamenco, ferias, and finos, and fine simple food. Visit the Roman ruins at Baelo Claudio, the lighthouse at Cape Trafalgar, or the old tuna fishing port at Sancti Petri. 30% of the Cádiz Province is National Park, and here you will find green rolling hills more akin to Ireland or Wales but with giant cactus hedges, one of the world's most important cork forests, and a micro climate within the Alcornocales park that is regarded as the the last Mediterranean jungle. It is an easy walk to the chemist, for newspaper, hot bread, mini market, and bar; also to playground, tennis, and 5-a-side soccer. 20-minute walk down beach to fine restaurants and a heavenly spa! Yet at night you will hear the waves, nightingales and owls.

Other Activities: Kayaking, bird watching, whale watching, ballooning, climbing
